Yes, you can thaw a 20 lb turkey in the refrigerator. It will take around three days depending on the refrigerator temperature and the original temperature of the frozen turkey. The turkey will keep in the fridge up to one week.

For more information about thawing and cooking a turkey see the Perfect Turkey Cookbook.

Yes, you can weigh down the turkey and you can you can also allow longer times for the turkey to defrost. Turkeys in some grocery stores (outside the Thanksgiving season) are often kept in deep freezers before they are moved out to the general freezer section, which may account for the longer defrost time.

Defrosting for longer periods in the refrigerator (overnight) is also okay as long as you cook the turkey soon after the defrosting is completed.
5  Recipes & Tips / Ask Your Question / Re: JAYKAY's post of Union Square Cafe Salad correction on: September 25, 2008, 03:23:11 PM
The recipe lists 1/4 cup goat cheese as the ingredient.

It also states that it is "adapted" from the Union Square Cafe cookbook.

Thanks for the "serves 4" addition.

The range available in desserts precludes me from making any one suggestion. For inspiration, I suggest you peruse the I Love Desserts Archives:

Maybe one of the the April 2007 selections would work:

The recipe links are listed at the bottom of that page.

8  Recipes & Tips / Ask Your Question / Re: Wines on: July 25, 2007, 01:53:13 PM
You can serve any wines, but I generally prefer red wines with cheese. The choice of wine usually depends on the cheese. Strong flavored cheese: red. Mild cheese: Perhaps a white.

Check out Fred McMillin's wine column "On Wine" for specific suggestions:

Of course you can use olive oil to fry chicken. You can also use canola or any other oil. Which oil you choose depends on budget, taste preferences or health concerns.

Steamed rice is a perfect backdrop to many of the dishes featured in the book. Perfectly steamed rice should be hot and fragrant. The type of rice you choose will have an effect on the cooked grain's texture. Jasmine or basmati rice has long kernels that are dry and have a tendency to separate. Sticky rice, as well as short- and medium-grain varieties, are moister with a greater tendency to hold together. Saffron rice has a rich golden hue.

Measure the rice, planning on about 1 cup dried rice for 6 people. Combine the rice and 2 cups cold water in a sauce pan. Add about 1 teaspoon salt (more or less to your taste) and bring the water to a boil over high heat. (For saffron rice, add 4 or 5 crushed saffron threads.) Immediately turn the heat to low, cover the pan tightly, and cook until the rice is tender. Check the rice from time to time as it steams; you may need to add a bit more water if the pot is dry but the rice is still crunchy. White rice usually takes about 15 minutes. Brown rice can take anywhere from 35 to 45 minutes.

If you want to send a personal message to another message board member rather than posting directly to the public boards, you should read the HELP file (use the HELP button that appears near the top of every page). Click on the Personal Message topic in bold type along the top of the HELP screen.

This is for people who don't like to read a lot of instructions:

The fastest way to send a personal message is to click on the word "messages" in the phrase at the top of this page:

"Hey, [your user name], you have x messages, x are new."

Or click on the IM icon to the left of any post (like this one) to send a message to the person posting the message.

Other methods are outlined in the HELP file.

After being on and offline for the past year due to server problems , a move, etc., the NEW message boards are finally here.

We have posted some "previously worn" messages to help the forum get started--anything posted by Archived Messages is from the old boards. Don't expect a reply from those usernames listed inside archived messages--but you're welcome to post replies to the old messages -- you might start a dialogue with new members as we begin to promote the board...
